Two PhD Positions in Community Health

Applications are invited for two full-time, three-year PhD positions at the Institute of Health and Society, Department of Community Medicine and Global Health. Intended starting date is September 1st 2022.

The Department of Community Medicine and Global Health has a broad range of research in the fields of community medicine, epidemiology, occupational medicine, global health, medical anthropology and medical history. Community medicine research, as we practice it, aims to produce knowledge about structural, environmental, social, and cultural circumstances that impact health and health inequities, and about actions, interventions and practices that may work to promote health, prevent illness, reduce suffering, and cure ill health. Knowledge of social and cultural frames in a society is necessary for professional understanding in community medicine.
